Penneshaw Beach

What people are saying:

Penneshaw Beach Penneshaw Beach is next to the Penneshaw Pier, on the southeast side of the pier. Penneshaw Pier is the landing pier for boats from Adelaide to Kangaroo Island. Sea Union owns two ferries, namely SeaLion 2000 and Spirit of Kangaroo Island, which run back and forth between Cape Jevis Pier in Cape Jervis south of Adelaide and Penneshaw Pier in Kangaroo Island. The distance between the two piers is about 18.6 kilometers, and the sailing takes 45 minutes. The bay on the east side of Penneshaw Beach is Hog Bay, this area is a great place to watch the sunrise. The Penniseau Penguin Center is on the northwest side of the beach. At night, you can see little penguins returning to their nests. The little penguins here are the same species as those on Phillip Island in Victoria, and are the smallest penguins in the world. However, there are not many tourists on the beach during the day. Everyone rushed to those well-known attractions as soon as they got on the island, and when they came back, they returned to Adelaide by boat. Not many people stopped here, unless of course they live nearby. Oh. We stayed on Kangaroo Island for three days and two nights. I rented a car after getting on the island and stayed at the Far Away Escape B&B in Kingscote. On the first day, I went to Willoughby Point Conservation Park, the American River, Clifford Honey Farm and Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Oil Refinery; the next day, we departed from Seal Bay, then Little Sahara Desert, Breeze Bay, Hanson Bay, All the way to Flinders Chase National Park; on the third day I went to Kingscote, Emu Bay Lavender Fields, and the area around Pennyshaw, and had a great time!

    Beautiful beach by the pier

    Unless you stay at Penneshaw, it’s likely that your only visit here would be one that happens while waiting for the ferry. The beach is beautiful though and the water is very clear.

    A beach with beautiful views

    Before we headed to the Penneshaw Beach, we saw lots of bushes. Once at the beach, I noticed that the sand looked white and it was easy to walk on. There were 3 boats on the beach. No one was t...
